$ 14.99


Release Date: 06/19/09

The much loved Fr. Ted actor and Irish comedian brings together a collection of his classic comedy sketches including the massive hit 'Christmas Countdown' which Frank perfomed on the UK's Top Of The Pops in 1984. Many of his radio sketches originated from his weekday RTÉ radio show The Glen Abbey Show in the 1970s until the 1990s. Kelly played the part of a culchie, 'Gobnait O'Lúnasa', the sketches typically started with the sound of him putting coins in an old freckle coin box, and when the phone rang and was answered, his words were, 'Hello! Guess who' Is that you Nuala'' Kelly acted the part of an English BBC reporter interviewing rural inhabitants about local customs, such as watching bacon being sliced, or 'ha-hooing' (shouting a Rebel yell) competitions. The village was called Ballykilferret and described by the BBC man as being in 'the Republic of Eer-ah' (a mispronunciation of Éire). In 2000, he released an album, Comedy Countdown, which featured his sketches taken from The Glen Abbey Show. Tracks included the 'Ayatollah Ceili Band' (a pun on The Tulla Céilí Band), 'Magnum Farce', 'Incoming Call', 'Festive Spirit', 'Hymn of Praise', 'Call of the Wild', 'Festive Note' and 'Siege Mentality'.
